Logan Airport Ceremony Honors 9/11 Victims

Boston's Logan International Airport is marking the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by holding a remembrance ceremony honoring those killed on two planes hijacked from the airport and flown into the World Trade Center towers.

Friday morning's ceremony will be at Logan's 9/11 Memorial.

Participants will include victims' families, Massachusetts Port Authority's Interim Director David Mackey and Victoria Kennedy, the wife of the late U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy.

The Memorial honors passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175 and the dedication of airport workers after the disaster.

The 2.5-acre site, dedicated in 2008, is located next to the Hilton hotel on the airport grounds. It includes stone walls, trees and two glass panels etched with the names of those on each flight.
